A two-vehicle crash Saturday on the Plainville Blacktop sent seven people to the hospital.

Sgt. Shawn Goodwin with the Adams County Sheriff's Department said the crash happened around 5:15 p.m. when a Ford Taurus in the Pleasant Grove Church drive pulled out in front of a northbound Mazda Tribute.

Goodwin said seven people were involved in the crash -- five in the SUV and two in the car.

Four ambulances on the scene took all seven to Blessing Hospital.

Details were not available on the injuries, but "I don't think any of them are life-threatening," Goodwin said. "We have some very lucky people."

The SUV "was pretty well totaled," Goodwin said.

Additional details on the crash, including names of the drivers and passengers involved, will be available when the sheriff's department report is complete.
